Three new cases recorded in Enugu state were people who willfully broke federal government’s lockdown rules and entered the state from other parts of Nigeria.
This was disclosed by the state’s commissioner for health, Dr. Ikechukwu Emmanuel Obi who regretted that such has been the recurring story for all 13 discoveries so far after the index case was recorded.
“In these times, we all need to comply strictly with all measures and regulations and exercise restraint from behaviours that will put others at risk,” he said.
He announced that the State is also considering the discharge of two more cases that have tested negative while in isolation, adding that the Fifth Case and her daughter who is recorded as Case No. 9 have recovered.
